The Flowering Cross by Beth Ryan, illustrated by Renee Graef
It is Easter Sunday and Katie is so excited! This Easter will be especially special as a very special neighbor will join them! One of Katie's favorite parts of Easter is placing flowers on the Easter cross.
What I Thought:
This is a sweet story very much rooted in the Christian faith. It's a story of kindness, compassion, sharing one's faith, and the meaning of Easter!
Just about each page has a "Faith Imprint" with a sentence about how the reader can participates in the book and are wonderful conversation starters for families! For example, on page one when Katie realizes it is Easter, the faith imprint is "Share what the first Easter was like when Jesus overcame death. Each of these imprints is also accompanied with a Bible verse.
While I link each book to Amazon, I receive no funds from them for this action. I simply do this as a service in case anyone would like to read further reviews (professional or otherwise) for more information. Thank You!
